Jeff Crouse

Jeff Crouse is a drummer/ percussionist living in Cary, NC with a passion for music, performing, and teaching. His education includes a Bachelors of Arts in Percussion Performance from Virginia Tech and a Masters of Music in Studio Jazz Drumming from the University of Miami. He has been fortunate to study with some great musicians including Howard Curtis, Dr. John Floyd, Chip McNeil, Steve Bagby, and Steve Rucker. 2009 has proved to be a good year for Jeff as he has recorded 3 new albums, the latest of which is “Little Town: Carols for Christmas,” a jazz Christmas album.
On Little Town: Carols For Christmas, the North Carolina based trio of pianist Grant Osborne, bassist Peter Innocenti and drummer Jeff Crouse combines exhilaration, refreshing authenticity, good swinging musicianship and an aura of charm and charity to a program that thankfully doesn't bulk up on over-familiar Xmas songs.
